Well, I got a 80 GB disk to get RAID fully up again. I plan to move to
80 GB disks later (to replace the other IBM before it dies).
How do I reconstruct my RAID1 system? raid0 consisted of /dev/wd4e and
/dev/wd5e and then /dev/wd4e failed. After replacing /dev/wd4e and
disklabeling it, I ended up with
root@kyyhky ~ # raidctl -s raid0
component0 status is: failed. Skipping label.
If I try to 'raidctl -R /dev/wd4e raid0' as suggested by the raidctl manpage,
raidctl: /dev/wd4e is not a component of this device
If I do 'raidctl -R component0 raid0', I get this in syslog:
Dec 27 14:17:15 kyyhky /netbsd: raid0: rebuilding: raidlookup on device:
component0 failed: 2!
I tried adding /dev/wd4e with -a and then reconstructing with -F and it
seemed to work, but after reboot, I ended up with the status shown above
What's the trick? :) Thanks!
